Re: Temporary leaving

Switzwerland has a doublt-taxation treaty (or whatever it's called) with Australia.

However, you need to check what the rules in Australia actually are. If you only have to pay tax there if you stay for 6 months or more then obviously you don't have to pay them there. Depends how you're making your income I suspect.

Most likely scenario is that you pay tax in Australia and then any extra (if any) in Switzerland. You'll probably need to keep up your accident/unemployment/retirement insurance thingies.

If it was me I'd consider de-registering from Switzerland and grabbing a new B permit when I came back.
